If you've never published an app to the Amazon Appstore, now is the perfect time to join! Most Android apps just work on the Amazon Appstore, but it’s not always easy being the new guy. That’s why for a limited time, we’re helping drive impressions and installs for developers that publish to the Amazon Appstore for the first time.
Publish your first app to the Amazon Appstore by August 16th, and we’ll provide you with a $100 promotional credit towards an ad campaign on Advertise Your App. Advertise Your App helps you promote your app to millions of users on Fire tablet wakescreens and mobile placements on the Amazon Mobile Ad Network. Ads are shown to users within the United States, depending on app compatibility.
Now you can worry a little bit less about getting the most out of the Amazon Appstore when you port your app!
How to Participate
Getting started is easy – follow these 4 steps to take advantage of both offers.
- Test your app in 90 seconds: Simply drag and drop your Android APK into Amazon's App Testing Service for results on Fire tablets, Fire Phone and Nexus 7.
- Submit your app: If it clears testing, submit your app to the Amazon Appstore directly from the test results page. Your app will be reviewed as part of the Amazon app approval process, which typically takes several days, and will be published to the Amazon Appstore after completing a successful review.
- Tell us about the app you've published by completing the Advertise Your App registration form by August 16, 2015
As a bonus, if you publish your first app to the Amazon Appstore, and you’ve integrated the Amazon Mobile Ads API, you may also qualify for a bonus offer courtesy of the Amazon Mobile Ad Network.

How can you say no to an offer like that? I hope you can’t think of a reason either.
